How can a civilian clinician understand the experiences of a client who has served his or her country? This 3-hour workshop provides guidance to civilian clinicians interested in delivering care to Veteran clients. Our workshop will combine educational resources, clinical vignette discussion, and practical examples to explore how civilian providers may navigate themes of rapport and empathy with respect and openness.

From an interactive base, the presenter provides practical demonstrations of the objectives through the utilization of technological media within an interactive attendee-centered PowerPoint presentation style. Attendees will be asked to participate in experiential exercises, including role play with colleagues.

Objectives: At the conclusion of the presentation, participants will be able to:

Identify 3 resources where one may learn about military themes, terminology and events.
Identify 3 clinical techniques for connecting with a client whose experience is highly divergent from one’s own.
Practice 1 role play applying these techniques with a colleague.

Cost: Free!
